Discourse Reactions - Beyond Likes

I updated on Friday and am just a handful of commits behind:

Thanks @tobiaseigen - I think I must have an underlying issue elsewhere :+1:

I’d like to be able to add a label to each emoji in the picker, like this:

:heart: Useful :mag_right: New info :mortar_board: Good analysis :lol: Funny

So that I can later filter out and highlight great posts with these “tags” down the road.

My plan is to create custom emojis that contain both the emoji and the text label in one image. Then add them to the custom emoji list, then use those emojis in the Beyond Likes picker. I’ll have to resize them with CSS since they won’t be square anymore.

Before I dive into attempting this and end up in tears, are there any obvious blockers to doing it this way? :slight_smile:

You might be interested in this topic as it has CSS that may accomplish what your looking for

Thumbs up reaction seems to be broken. Shows up for a bit but then it disappears. Anyone else encounter this issue?

I’ve cleaned up a bunch of old obsolete replies but this topic may need more cleanup and attention @Ahmed_Gagan

My reactions plugin seem to be completely broken, only the regular like button works.

Which Discourse version are you running? Could you please share any relevant errors from your site logs or your browser console?

It works well on android-edge. It doesn’t work on desktop-edge.
Not sure if this is helpful but here is the console:


Discourse version: Commits · discourse/discourse (github.com)

I’m not sure why but it seems my previous reply is deleted by somebody. So I’ll post it here again:

The issue that it’s super easy to accidentally hit :heart: still exist.

And i believe it’s because currently the plugin counts this action as hitting :heart: as well: start the scrolling with finger at the :heart: button and scroll up/down and lose the finger somewhere else. I believe if this action is not counted as hitting :heart:, it will not be this easy to accidentally hit :heart:.

Thanks a lot if your team could fix it! Our users are complaining about it every now and then…

Old replies are deleted to keep the topic up to date. Many very old replies are no longer relevant or have been fixed, etc.

I just turned on Reactions and am seeing this as well with the Thumbs Up.

I’m finding the same behaviour on my local dev site. We’re looking into the issue now.

Is there a way to set a maximum number of reactions per day?

Similar to:

Is anyone else experiencing a bug where the reactions don’t pop up on hover in Desktop browsers (Chrome and Edge) and only works in mobile browsers?

I’m just seeing an alternate text “Like this post” :

Sorry to push - but do you have an ETA for that fix?

It seems the issue still exists… See this video from a user from our forum:

We just merged a fix:

The fix solves the problem by replacing thumbsup with +1 in the discourse_reactions_enabled_reactions and existing reactions.


There’s currently no limit for reactions. It probably makes sense to add one since we should aim to have feature-parity with likes, but I’m not sure if that’s something we’ll work on soon.
